Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity, equity, and inclusion at AGU
As an organization that serves a large, global community of Earth and space scientists, AGU is committed to efforts promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our recently adopted strategic plan works toward the vision that “Diversity and Inclusion are recognized and celebrated as being essential for the success of AGU, its members, and the global Earth and Space Science enterprise." We encourage you to learn more about our work, our progress, and how to get involved.
